4-H & FFA Exhibits
4-H & FFA Exhibit Details:
The Monongalia County 4-H Program is excited to exhibit 4-H members’ projects at the 2013 Monongalia County Fair. In order to exhibit, youth enrolled as regular 4-H members will complete and turn in 4-H exhibits to the Hazel Ruby Building at Mylan Park on Monday from 10am-5pm. (Project books will be due to the Extension Office by June 24). The goal of 4-H is to develop citizenship, leadership, and life skills of youth through hands-on learning programs. The 4-H name represents four personal development areas of focus for the organization: head, heart, hands, and health. Although typically thought of as an agriculturally focused organization as a result of its history, 4-H today focuses on citizenship, healthy living, and science, engineering and technology programs.
- 4-H exhibit check-in will be with the culinary and craft check-in on Monday from 10-5pm at the Hazel Ruby Building.
- 4-H is hosting the second annual Youth Ag Olympics program to be held on Saturday at 2:00 at the barn. Youth participants will win prizes and take part in fun age-related activities.
- 4-H exhibits can be picked-up the Saturday night of the Fair. All exhibits that are not picked up on Saturday night will be transported to the Extension Office and must be picked-up the week following the fair at the Extension Office.
